. and instead cbs poll gave the debate to paujoe biden. >> falling exchange on medicare and social security. >> medicare and social zuccotti did so much for my own family. we will not jeopardize this program, but we have to save it. >> you are changing the program from a guaranteed benefit. the bottom line is that people have to pay more money out of their pocket. >> prior to the the vice- presidential debate, the question, should obama supporters start freaking out to? [laughter] did the vice-president head of the freak out? >> i think he probably did. for the days, for the people who were cheering him on, he did with the president did not do the week before. he answered everything that bryant had to say -- that ryan had to say. if he had not indulge in that small a time, the biden tick, you would have said that he had walked the floor with paul ryan. >> pick a winner. >> if you read the transcript, it was a draw. if you heard it on the radio, biden won. if you watched it on tv, biden lost. if you heard it on talking points, it was about even. you heard it on the raider, joe biden was in c

, my colleague at cbs. i just raised a question of whether this debate in any way until we see the next presidential debate either enhanced or stopped in any way the romney momentum coming out of the first debate and the change it had brought. >> i think what it did is it gave democrats something to be, you know, get their blood going again, there was a lot of chaos and fury and then biden hit every point the president missed from talking about the 47 percent video to talking about detroit, to encapsulating the general argument which is that the romney-ryan ticket, this is of course the argument coming from the obama team that the romney-ryan ticket is just kind of so over the top in their claims that they are laughable, now that sucker for democrats, the question is, independents and swing voters who could very well have seen biden's attempt to turn ryan into dan quayle, which i don't think worked, see that and think he is arrogant, think he is a little too full of himself for an a administration that had the difficulty with this economy they have had. the caveat of course is that swin

and cbs. in many states we have higher ratings. the difference between us and them, it's under the same category, is the language. we transmit in a different language, however, now we're changing that. >> what do you mean? >> we're changing that now because now we have the joint venture with abc and we are going to be doing the same thing that we're doing but do it in english so we can make sure we have all the market. the special thing about that is it's not only for that sector of latinos who is more english dominant and prefers to speak english, but i think it actually contributes to the society and to democracy in this country so that everyone who speaks english in this country understands who latinos are, what are the issues that affect us. maybe they need to know what's going on with their neighbors south of the border. you know, here you have this continent that sometimes it seems that people in the north don't like to look south and they don't realize that we are one continent and that there's, what, over 300 million people that speak spanish and that affects us economically dir

. >> not to get into markets and academics and polls but there was one poll done by cbs of independents. and uncommitted voters. that was their entire sample. after the debate. and biden won 50-31. >> woodruff: just independents. >> just uncommitted, people who were supporting a candidate but said they could switch, could leave that candidate. and so biden did-- i didn't find, i mean joe biden's default facial expression is a smile. i mean if he's irritated he smiles. he's got great teeth, i don't blame him for smiling. but if he's happy he smiles. if he-- if he is a little nervous he smiles. i didn't find it to be-- i mean he did interruption but i didn't find it to be so over the top. >> woodruff: you didn't think it took away from the substance. >> i think that you could certainly on a split screen if you would prefer it that he hadn't done it the way he did it. and there were occasionally some sounds of displeasure. but i thought at no point did paul ryan express, or manifest other than the one time he raised the question, and i thought it was perfectly appropriate on his part, wher
